Charity Tahmaseb has slung corn on the cob for Green Giant and jumped out of airplanes (but not at the same time). She doesn’t think it’s a social stigma to eat alone at a restaurant and read a book. Her favorite city is London, but she loves living in Minnesota.

She spent twelve years as a Girl Scout and six in the Army; that she wore a green uniform for both may not be a coincidence. These days, she writes young adult fiction and works as a technical writer for a software company in St. Paul.

Oh, the Janesville Baby is definitely something that could/should be part of a mystery:

A doll. Hanging in an upper window. In an old house. Glimpsed briefly, through the smudged window of a school bus.

[image error]When it comes to writing tools, I’m low-tech, perhaps surprisingly so, considering I work for a software company.


I’ve tried various applications, and mind you, I wouldn’t format anything without Vellum these days.


But … when it comes to actually writing?


I love notebooks and pens, in particular:



Legal pads
Composition notebooks
Sugarcane based, spiral-bound notebooks

“Genius or jock, it didn't seem to matter. Boys were born with a gene that kept girls, no matter how smart they might be, from understanding them.”
Charity Tahmaseb, The Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading

“Uh-oh," Moni sang, and nodded her head in Chantal's direction. "I think someone's a wee bit upset with us." She turned and walked a few steps backward.
"Careful," I said. "We're not out of range."
"Have no fear, Super Brain is here." Moni whipped out her calculator, holding it up like a shield.
